If anyone needs any extra mommy points than this recipe is the one to get them for you. We drove by a Krispy Kreme fund raiser this weekend to the sound of our kids begging in the back seat.
My answer to them was, “Oh, I can make donuts at home. We don’t need to spend all that money.”
Sometimes I speak without thinking first.
So when I got home I scoured the internet for a decent and uncomplicated donut recipe which I found HERE.
I made the dough in my bread machine the night before. Rolled them and cut them out using a glass for the donut and the top of my salt shaker for the hole. Then I put them in the fridge for the night.
In the morning I took them out and put them in my warm oven for an hour while I exercised in preparation for a big pig-out and then read the paper.
I fried them up and made the glaze recipe, adding a handful of melted chocolate chips and this was my result.
The kids said they didn’t taste like Krispy Kreme but they were definitely Winchell’s quality donuts.
